Terrorism III package: cyber-terrorism and agri-terrorism

I will submit a Terrorism III package that will include legislation dealing with two critically important areas--cyber-terrorism and agri-terrorism.

Finally, we will redouble our efforts to ensure that federal homeland security funds are concentrated on the areas under the greatest threat--and that means New York City, the world's greatest symbol of freedom and prosperity.

Support Empire Innovation and Centers of Excellence

Today is clearly the dawn of a new economic paradigm--where brains rather than brawn, research rather than resources, will be the determining factors in the increasingly global competition for growth, investment & jobs.

Working with our vastly improved SUNY and CUNY schools, we'll create a new Empire Innovation program that will attract even more top-flight researchers and the federal grant dollars they bring with them.

And let's go even farther. Our Centers of Excellence are the envy of states from coast to coast--and have already attracted over $8.5 billion in new investment, and are propelling New York toward a future as a global leader in university-based research, high-tech business creation, and job development.

Last year the federal government and the nation's semi-conductor industry announced a collaborative initiative that will result in two new state-of-the-art research facilities to drive the computer chip breakthroughs of the future--one right here in New York's Tech Valley.

Make NY the center for clean, renewable energy research

We led the way as seven Northeast states put in place the first regional market-based program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in American history. Let's continue to build on that record of accomplishment by making New York State the leader in reducing dependence on imported energy.

The entire world is now grappling with the question "where will we get the energy to power the global economy of the 21st century without causing irreparable damage to our natural environment?" Let's make New York the place where that defining question is answered. Let's make New York the worldwide center for clean, renewable energy research, product development and job creation. Let's attract companies from around the world that are developing the clean, renewable energy sources of the future--let's make the entire state a tax free zone for this growing industry.
